§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister or Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he has studied the Minister of Transport's proposals for improving the A.27 trunk road between Brighton and Lancing, and the plans for an alternative motorway north of this existing trunk road; and how these projects affect his overall plan for the development of West Sussex in the next fifty years.21W
§ Mr. Rippon
I understand that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport has no immediate proposals for improving the A.27 trunk road between Brighton and Lancing beyond the small widening scheme now in progress at Shoreham-by-Sea. I assume that the plans for an alternative motorway to the north are those put forward by local residents which my right hon. Friend is now considering. Until it is decided that such a motorway is needed it would be premature to consider what effect it can have on the development plan for West Sussex.
